Trail Maintenance

While hiking our trail is great fun, many people find that maintaining it is even more fun. Routine maintenanwork_party1 (800x450)ce activities include

  • clearing deadfall
  • installing and replacing trail signage
  • trimming brush and weeds from the trail
  • and mowing the trails.

We also install and repair bridges and fence crossings.

The tools we use are chain saws, mowers, weed eaters, clippers, hammers, and small hand tools.

We provide the safety gear, training and orientation. All volunteers are covered by Workers Compensation.
